Well, "auto shifting" is a bit hyperbolic, but it does automatically shift with RD control only, to maximize chain lines. So yes, it's not fully auto, but it will automatically shift in certain conditions. I'm reading the review on CyclingTips right now, it's very informative.There's no auto shifting.
I believe you're referring to Synchronized Shift. Which isn't auto shifting.
ha why not for trim though? I think they mean it is for trimming, not shifting chainrings?I don't want my front derailleur shifting autonomously, if that's what this is about!
Well you can turn it off.I don't want my front derailleur shifting autonomously, if that's what this is about!
My 10 and 11 speed cable-operated Campy Chorus front derailleurs offer a reasonable amount of trim. Yeah, maybe I can't adjust them quite as finely as I can with my old friction shift derailleur bicycle but...been a long time since we have had proper 'trim' on the Front derailleur. I mean friction-shift front derailleur is the last system to allow that.
There is some feedback about lag when shifting so I'll take wires over that any day, and cranks are one of the few places I don't want carbon but that might be residual paranoia from years back.not much change really.
wires? ewwwww eTap is all over this
no carbon crank arms yet either.
yet .. still it's great stuff that the majority of pros use, fwiw
I can only agree Shimano makes some fanatically precise and solid mechanical shifting these days. And I also like to save a few bucks, get DA quality shifting ... in Ultegra11 group price point.As far as that group goes, I think it's damn sexy, and I've always found their stuff to just plain work..
